  • Blount rushed seven times for one yard during Sunday's 20-19 victory over Carolina. Blount's lack of explosiveness was on full display once again, and it again reflected in his stat line. While the veteran could be in store for a much larger workload in the immediate future if Kerryon Johnson's knee injury forces the rookie to miss time, Blount no longer seems to have the skillset to be consistently productive in non-ideal circumstances. Regardless of Johnson's status, Blount will be especially hard to trust for fantasy purposes during a daunting matchup against the Bears in Week 12.

  • Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Cleared for Week 10
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount (knee) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Chicago. Meanwhile, Kerryon Johnson (ankle) remained limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday. Blount could have some fantasy appeal if his backfield mate is ultimately ruled out, but he'd still be looking at a tough matchup against a Bears defense that's given up just 3.7 yards per carry and 85 rushing yards per game. It isn't clear if Johnson is truly questionable or if the Lions are just being overly cautious on the injury report.

  • Blount (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Both Blount and Kerryon Johnson (ankle) have had their reps limited in the first two practices of the week, but there hasn't been any indication from the Lions that either back is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Bears. Though Blount maintains a short-yardage/goal-line role for Detroit, his weekly fantasy value almost entirely hinges on him finding the end zone these days with Johnson having emerged as the team's top ballcarrier.

  • Blount produced eight yards on five carries and two yards on his only reception during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Vikings. As was the case last week against Seattle, the Lions were rarely in a position to pound the rock, and when they did, they weren't particularly effective. In any case, Kerryon Johnson has out-carried Blount 20 to eight over the last two games as the Detroit coaching staff is looking more and more inclined to give the rookie the bulk of the available work on early downs. Blount will remain a low-floor, touchdown-dependent fantasy option in Week 10 against Chicago.

  • Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Back at practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount (illness) was present for the start of the Lions' practice Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. The Lions will clarify later in the day whether Blount was a limited or full participant in the session. Even if Blount faces some restrictions with his reps Thursday, it's a positive sign for his health that he's simply in attendance for the session after the ailment prevented him from joining the Lions on Wednesday. At this point, the impressive play of rookie second-round pick Kerryon Johnson through the first four weeks of the season seems like the bigger hindrance to Blount's fantasy outlook for Sunday's game against the Packers than the illness.
